The 8th and 9th July 2017 will be the 10th outing for the Dorset Seafood Festival in Weymouth. This is a premier event for the Southwest of England and is known for promoting the use of sustainable seafood.
Although it's very easy to start the day well and feel smug that you are enjoying your morning porridge whilst your work colleagues are chowing down on their second croissant, it's hard to maintain the same level of will power later in the day when you start to get hungry or things at work begin to get a little stressful.
Served atop loaded bowls starring delicious, crispy tofu seasoned with middle-eastern flavours from ras-el-hanout and herby green harissa, this will be sure to take you to food heaven. It's of course perfect for falafels, for salads, any others bowls or rice dishes and for dipping too.
Just as good for breakfast as for dessert. Dessert for breakfast anyone? Top with ice cream or whipped coconut cream and sugar dusted berries for a summertime treat. Or get indulgent with chocolate shavings and warm salted caramel sauce on top of your ice cream!
If you haven't come across gochujang before, I urge you to get your sticky mitts on a tub of this fabulous Korean chilli paste. Traditionally gochujang was made by adding powdered red chili peppers and glutinous rice powder to soybean paste and ageing the mixture under the sun. 'Ooh yum' I hear you mutter, but trust me, it tastes amazing.
The word 'science' can ofter be prefixed by the word 'pseudo' when it comes to fitness advice dished-out by so-called specialists, and often causes the real experts to frown and scratch their chins in bemusement.

In this version of the recipe, I add cannellini beans to boost protein, fiber and nutrition. Cannellinis are also known as fagioli, white kidney beans and haricots blancs. The variety, popular in Italian, Greek and French cuisines has a creamy texture and a mellow, nutty flavor...
One can only hope that the British public won't be deterred from making a nutritious green smoothie once in a while due to bad editing and lazy research.
To say that UK farming is at a crossroads is an understatement. Food security, the rural economy and environmental management could all change beyond recognition after Brexit when the UK's relationship with the Common Agricultural Policy ends.
For a month I lived almost entirely on steak. Well, steak and salads and fruit, but the Argentinians know their beef and how to cook it and one of my favourite ways is with chimichurri, a herby, pungent sauce. Recipes vary but it generally includes parsley, oregano and garlic, sometimes chilli, all bound in an oil and vinegar dressing.
This has to be one of my favourite dishes that I ever created! A one-pot wonder, infused with Mediterranean flavours. Serve straight from oven to table...
When the children break up, the contents of my purse seem to just disappear! School holidays are expensive with childcare, entertainment, buying new uniform and now, according to recent reports, the average family food shop doubles over the six week break!
